Advanced Visualization of Video Sequence Data

The data for this visualization is a 96 frame video sequence of a sunrise timelapse. Each frame is 160 x 120 pixels in resolution. The entire dataset contains ~1.8 million objects.

Basic Version

This version uses color, scale, and transparency to represent the RGB values of each pixel in the video sequence.

Using Geometry and Topology

In addition to using color, scale, and transparency to represent the RGB values of each pixel in the video sequence, this version also uses geometry and topology.

Using Color Gradient Values

In addition to using color, scale, transparency, geometry, and topology to represent the RGB values of each pixel in the video sequence, this version also calculates the color gradient between pixels in adjacent frames.
